Tanzania in Deep Time

December 5 - February 12, 2008

  On view Through February 12, 2009

Drs. Nancy Stevens and Patrick O’Connor, both of Ohio University, have been working on a paleontological field research project in the Rukwa Rift Basin of southwestern Tanzania. This project is a large collaborative effort involving researchers from Ohio University, University of Dar Es Salaam, Michigan State University, Tanzania National Museums, and Southern Utah University.  Last summer, the team launched an exhibit on Tanzanian paleontology and biodiversity through time in English and Kiswahili languages at the Tanzanian National Museum. This complete exhibit will be on view for the first time in the US at The Dairy Barn Arts Center in Athens, Ohio. O
Come see The Dairy Barn Arts Center’s latest exhibit “Tanzania in ‘DEEP TIME’ Paleontology in the Rift Valley.” The exhibitlets you see behind the scenes of an actual paleontological dig, from tools to excavation techniques to life in the field. In addition, you will learn how discoveries from this field project are helping to solve the mysteries of the past. What animals lived on the “Supercontinent” of GONDWANA? How are they related to the animals that live today? Stop in, see and learn what fossil discoveries from the East African Rift can tell us about the past. Come discover the dinosaurs and other creatures of “Tanzania in ‘DEEP TIME.’
